Emporer on Hill St. Tapas is excellent in there too.



good stuff, will give it a bash. haven't been there before.
 
hopefully it's better than the empress near mill rd as that place is utter waste.

Not really into it for the most part, I like the odd pils or something with a bit of body like a good stout, but so much 'craft beer' is overpriced and tastes like shit imo. Pubs are now full of wankers droning on about it as well, acting like you don't like beer if you drink Heineken.

I disagree. Most 'craft' ales I've tried nearly always taste nicer than your mainstream mass produced stuff. Only once or twice have I gambled and ended up with something disgusting.

the craft beer trend is a good one for beer, but I find it a bit frustrating that people don't appreciate good old British real ale more.
 
Internationally, British beer has a pretty terrible reputation and it's ridiculous really.  Good British ale is as good as anything the Belgians can produce.

Real Ale has undergone a huge revival, it can't be that underappreciated.

it is internationally.  I suppose the biggest reason for it is that real ale can't travel.

They sell Ubu on tap in the Elm Park Tavern in Brixton. Good pub.

Yeah maybe, it does need to be kept cool and readily drunk. Beer festivals, although often populated by beardy wierdys, are a great showcase for real ale and could probably take off abroad - just as Oktoberfest tribute events have gained popularity over here. Casks are quintessentally British though and suit our climate.

Depends what you like. The trend at the moment seems to be to make everything so fucking hoppy that it tastes like poison.

had some gipsy hill Beatnik yesterday... it was ok
 
the label described it as "iconoclastically fruity" which was almost enough for me to not open it

Don't like craft beer at all.

A good pint of Guinness beats everything. Very rare to get one over here though.

Popped into Lidl the other day after a mate recommended their bakery and beer selection. Picked up some of their craft ales and have to say, for £1.25 for 500ml bottles, they're really great value. 
 
 
 
 
Well worth picking up a few bottles if you're passing through.

I'm supping craft beer, in a meatball restaurant,where the menu is written on brown paper, the table number is on a wooden spoon in an old beer bottle, none of the furniture matches and there are loads of old brown books up on shelves.

What's the betting my meatballs are served in a rusty shovel?

It's a good beer.  I had the homebrew kit for this one and managed to get it spot on, which was pleasing

Yeah Punk IPA is tasty. I find it too gassy though.
 
Pale ale is my go-to drink these days. After visiting Belgium I can't drink the standard piss here anymore.

The Aldi beer festival had 18 different beers in.
 
If anyone goes into there the Pale Ale from Titanic is amazing as is the Hop Monster and Two Tribes.
